Have You Ever Heard Demonic Whispers?

Let me begin by reminding you of some of the lies Satan poured into the ear of Eve, “"You won't die. God knows that the moment you eat from that tree, you'll see what's really going on. You'll be just like God, knowing everything, ranging all the way from good to evil” (Genesis 3:4-5). This is a lie, bold face lie from Satan, as you will note the following lies directed at my wife:

“could this post be any stupider? seriously, nobody gives a crap and we are all now dumber for having read are awarded no points and may God have mercy on your soul.”
“once again you are so stupid and the things you blog about make no sense. The reasons your love is based on are not anything of true worth or value. Oh and just because you put love in there a THOUSAND times doesn't make it any more true.”
These comments were recently left on my wife’s blog concerning her love for me and I can firmly say these hateful statements adequately tore down my wife and I. For your pleasure and satisfaction, I will mention, the comments tore us down to tears. I think someone really has so much time on his or her hands to sit around and be hateful because they have nothing better to do (like a job or a life) and Satan is effectively using that someone to tear us down.

In addition, these comments were left at the appropriate time in accordance with Satan’s plans because we are currently facing some trials. To clarify: I do not mean marriage trails, but we are being persecuted by other worldly things that if you would like to know about them, you can speak to us on a personal level. All to say, these comments were expected because Satan is throwing the bus at us in an attempt to tear us down in order keep us from following God’s will. I can assure you, these silly comments are not and will not slow us down or cause us to run and hide, or stop is from chasing after what God has called us to do.

We all make choices every second of the day. In these critical moments when you sit down, read someone else’s words and thoughts, you might think to yourself, “I think I will say something hateful.” These divine opportunities are given for you to choose to dispel the evil and say nothing at all, leave a constructive comment, or say a word of encouragement. Ultimately, as seen above, you have chosen to tear a believer down and we will gladly accept your hateful words, post them and share them because it only makes us stronger.

We thank you for leaving your thoughts and comments and if you are a believer we pray that God breaks your heart, reveals the evil in your life, and removes it and makes you a better person in Him. We pray that if you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, we are praying for you and would be more than willing to share our relationship with Jesus with you, because it is life changing filled with love, grace and forgiveness. I will leave you with this:

“Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut,
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always "me first,"
Doesn't fly off the handle,
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn't revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
Love never dies….”
(I Corinthians 13:4-8)

And now I'm mad!! And baffled...and...mad!

Your reaction to the persecution that the two of you are facing humbles my heart and fills me with love for our God who has put that attitude in you. I'll be praying for you both :)
